Disc 2 of Live at Fillmore East 2-11-69 (2 disc set) is great, but Live/Dead is better... if that's the remastered edition on Rhino/WEA in a cardboard case rather than the plastic case - get it for sure!
It's one of the first 16 track live albums ever recorded, and has a "wide screen" sound that the GD never got again on their live releases that I'm aware of.

Live/Dead may be over familiar to folks who've played it hundreds of times, but it's essential, a lot of effort went into making it the ultimate live recording, it's not just a great performance, it's also a great mix.
Virtually flawless.

Thanks! It is indeed the remaster. I'll have to keep that in mind. The only thing I don't like about those remasters is that I can never seem to keep the corners of the cardboard looking nice; they get frayed from taking them out and putting them in my CD Tower.

Maybe get a blank empty plastic jewell case for the Live/Dead disc and put the paper digi-pak cover in a mylar or plastic sleeve to keep it mint...
or even frame it in UV filter archival (plexi) glass - why not!

I even duplicate ones I play a lot or travel with. At this point I've bought vinyl and CDs of too many things multiple times, so backups are great.
